Oriental kittens are a
Siamese hybrid which offers the lean build and silky
fur of the Siamese but with a wider variety of
colors (more than 300 combinations). Oriental Shorthair
kittens are energetic, curious, friendly, intelligent, loyal,
fond of human companionship and can be quite vocal.
Note that there is also an Oriental Longhair variety as well
though it is more difficult to find. The Oriental
Shorthair's coat is fairly easy to groom. Oriental cats
share some of the same health problems as the Siamese - tooth
decay, liver problems and heart disease. Following
are several videos of Oriental kittens.
